5 picks from Tuesday evening's Championship fixtures
It's a busy night of football in the second tier, so make it a profitable one with this bumper five-fold.
Cardiff to beat Ipswich –
Despite beating Burton at the weekend, Ipswich’s bright start to the season is a memory.
That was the Tractor Boys’ first win in four, while they have lost seven of their last 10 in all competitions.
Cardiff were held 0-0 by 15th-placed Millwall on Saturday, but remain unbeaten at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Middlesbrough to beat Hull –
Middlesbrough won 2-0 at Reading on Saturday, ending a six-game winless run.
Despite that indifferent form, Garry Monk’s side are unbeaten in five on the road.
Hull were beaten 3-2 at home to Nottingham Forest and have now lost seven of their last 13.
Derby to beat Leeds –
Leeds lost 2-1 at home to table-toppers Sheffield United last weekend, and Tuesday should be another miserable affair.
That was the fifth league defeat in seven matches for Thomas Christiansen’s side, who are now 19th in the Championship form table.
Derby earned their third win on the trot on Saturday, beating Norwich 2-1 on the road.
Wolves to win or draw against Norwich –
Wolves went down 2-1 to QPR on Saturday – just their second defeat in 10 league games.
Prior to that loss, they had won three league games on the spin, and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side remain in the automatic promotion places.
Norwich lost at home to Derby last time out and are without a win in four at Carrow Road.
Bolton to win or draw against Sunderland –
Bottom-of-the-league Bolton have picked up recently, taking five points from matches against Sheffield Wednesday, QPR and Fulham.
That run has taken them to within two points of second-bottom Sunderland and five points from safety.
The Black Cats lost at home to Bristol City at the weekend, and have now gone 18 games without a win at the Stadium of Light.
